The Best Decaf Coffee in Vancouver Blog Cover

Where is the Best Decaf Coffee in Vancouver?

A very common question we get at Siply HQ is “Where is the Best Decaf Coffee in Vancouver?”.

Because even for us coffee fiends, there comes a time when the cravings hit but we can’t afford to lose any beauty sleep. And then?

Boom — decaf.

But where is the good decaf? The stuff we’d willingly cross the city for. A coffee you might even mistake for the real thing.

Truth is, the options for a fix without the kicks around town have improved and diversified in leaps and bounds lately, thanks in no small part to the wizards at Swiss Water Decaf. (Did you know this Burnaby company supplies decaffeinated greens to roasters worldwide?).

So when the shakes start to show and the caffeine poops cramp your game, where can you get a hit without hanging your head in shame?

Don’t lose any more sleep over it — here’s where we go for the best decaf coffee in Vancouver.


Craft Cafe

The decaf brews are no exception to the “craft” label, with a rotating selection of beans from industry greats like the barn, Stumptown, Tim Wendelboe, and Modus. Thus, we have no qualms about trekking out to New Westminster for what invariably ranks among the best decaf coffee in Vancouver.

C Market Coffee

Their house-roasted decaf Colombian might actually keep you up at night, simply because it’s such a delight to devour. On the other hand, maybe it’s because (like us) you also devoured their delicious desserts and the sugar high’s in full swing. We regret nothing.

House of Funk Roasting

“Eating breakfast cereal, right out of the box”. Never would we have imagined relating so closely to a decaf coffee, but there it is — house of funk’s downtempo decaf tastes like one of our favourite snack attacks. Moreover, if you do indulge in a caffeine hit, you can play uppers & downers with their equally extraordinary beer selection.

Pallet Coffee Roasters

Sink your teeth into their Sidamo decaf, a single origin from Ethiopia, like you would a big ol’ jam sandwich, because that’s how luscious it tastes. With or without crusts, as you like. And the crema it makes as espresso is unbelievable!

Prototype

The decaf options at prototype are just as juicy, unique, and memorable as any of their regular offerings. For example, a recent Mexican number featured notes of caramel apple that we swore we’d have to lick off our fingers. Sometimes they even have beans that naturally pack only half or a third of the punch — ask and they’ll give you the lowdown.

Rocanini

The artwork on their to-go cups is unreal, so you’ll flaunt that drink with pride regardless of its caffeine content. But seriously, the Rocanini team have fine-tuned their decaf to smooth, caramel-like perfection, so you’ll love it no matter what cup it’s in. Go for a pour-over if fruit notes appeal, or rock the fudgy side with espresso.

Single V

If cozy comforts appeal, you’ll love the house-roasted decaf on bar at single v. They usually serve it as an americano with crema so buttery we’re reaching for the toast… but if you prefer a pour-over, they’ll do that, too.
